Salvini says going forward on 'father and mother' ID card

Minister says will ignore privacy watchdog's view

(ANSA) - Rome, November 16 - Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has said the ministry is "going forward" on replacing "parent 1" and "parent 2" with "father" and "mother' on electronic ID cards for children.
    "We are going forward" despite the opposition of Italy's privacy watchdog which is against the change, said Salvini.
    "There is no privacy guarantor that can deny a child's right to have a mother and a father," he said. The Italian association of municipalities, ANCI, also came out against Salvini's proposed change on Friday.
    Family Minister Lorenzo Fontana, a League member, said "well done Matteo, you go forward on right things!".
